        Comments about Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1850 PCI Express TV Tuner for Windows (White Box):

        I got my card, put it in, great picture, no sound.And since I have it hooked to a cable box, I had to order the remote control and irblaster, which won't work with any of the codes for a pace box. The win7 program won't come up, it will go thur the setup, but asks for the setup disk in the final stage only to say it can't find it, so set is not complete.
        And with the return policy of three days....please!
        Save your money and your time.
